Golden Graham Treats

7 Dec

Alice and I would make these in college– most memorably, for a munchies party. That’s right, welcome to sophomore year of college. Complete with tapestry- that I legit thought was cool.  Anyway, they taste like s’mores and take about 10 minutes to make. I really don’t know why these never quite got the home-baker acclaim that rice krispy treats did. They used to print this recipe on the box- but no longer. When I tried to find it on the internet, all the recipes were not as I remembered and had corn syrup in them- gross. So I decided I would instead use the proportions in rice krispy treats- and just do as close to I remembered.

12oz box golden grahams
1 bag mini marshmallows (most of bag- save a handful for topping)
1 bag ghiradelli milk chocolate chips (most of bag- save a handful for topping)- Freeze ahead of time!!
3 tablespoons butter

Grease pan w. butter– I used a 11 x 7 pyrex.  Melt butter in big pot. Add almost all bag of marshmallows.  Stir. Cook until melted. Take off heat. Add whole box of golden grahams. Stir to coat. Wait a second so a little cool.  Stir in most of bag of chocolate. Transfer to pan.  Take a piece of wax paper- maybe best to butter it- put it on top of golden grahams and pat down to flatten- or can use damp hands. Peel off. Sprinkle on topping- handful of marshmallows and choc chips- lightly press down. Wait a bit while they cool. Cut into squares.

    These were seriously delish. Anonymous and his female paramour really enjoyed these, even after Ms. Backo shoved them in Anonymous’s pocket in the most clandestine manner. They were superb. Also makes a delicious breakfast treat. Just saying.

    yep, the delicious breakfast treat comment was right on. Woke up in a stuper after a big night and these treats were the light that began my day. I felt like they were nutritious because there was cereal in them. They probably weren’t – but that didn’t take away from the sweet satisfaction!!!

    So so good and I’m glad you posted this on your blog – I will be making these post haste. Anon was pocketing these at the party? That explains why I only ate 10 of them… Side note: can these be legitimately eaten for breakfast?
